GRAMMY Award winning producer/DJ Sharam returns with his new single Our Love; released on the world renowned Yoshitoshi Recordings. Nearly two years in the making, Our Love is a fantastic return for a producer known for making pure magic when uniting a storming instrumental dance track with the perfect vocals. The voice of Our Love comes from Iranian-American singer/songwriter Anousheh Khalili who’s best known for her appearance on Deep Dish’s Flashdance and Say Hello, which was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2006 in the Best Dance Recording category. On Our Love, Sharam balances an uplifting piano and throbbing basslines with Anousheh’s gorgeous vocal right over the top. It’s a wonderful send-off to 2011 and a sign of great things to come from Sharam in 2012.
“I’m a firm believer in innovation in music and work hard to try new things and not to repeat myself. That may result in a song taking longer than I’d like to become final, but that’s sometimes what it takes to perfect a song that I believe in so much. So without further ado I’m happy to present Our Love featuring the beautiful and haunting vocals of Anousheh,” Sharam Says
Our Love comes on the heels of Sharam’s first mixed CD compilation in nearly five years – “Sharam Live at Warung Beach Brasil”. Recorded live at Warung, Brazil’s electronic “music temple” this three-hour genre-bending set stands as a testament to Sharam’s dedication to educating while entertaining the masses without any musical limitations. Not only was his head-turning 10-hour set a hit at Warung breaking the club’s all time attendance record, the set also formed the basis of a prestigious Essential Mix in May 2011 on BBC Radio 1, with Pete Tong describing Sharam as being “on devastating form”. “Sharam Live at Warung Beach Brasil” is out now.
Sharam is one of only few dance artists who effortlessly navigates between the nocturnal world of dance music with underground gems like Crazi, Texi and Don’t Say A Word while scoring Top 20 Hits internationally with PATT (Party All The Time), The One featuring Daniel Bedingfield, and She Came Along with Kid Cudi. In 2011 he unleashed his “Mach EP” releases which include M.I.T.T., an underground favorite featuring a powerful vocal hook from Shakira, and Fun a song written by Chris Martin of Coldplay. His latest effort God Always, a dubstep influenced house track was hailed as one of the runaway surprise records from the Miami Music Conference.
Already beyond well known for his role as part of the legendary DJ duo Deep Dish, which brought the world huge hits like Flashdance and Say Hello, he is also the driving force behind the legendary Yoshitoshi record label using it as a vehicle to promote newly discovered talent from around the world. Of course, none of this would matter unless Sharam’s music connected with people which it clearly does year after year in the world’s largest music venues and radio stations around the world, while dance music purists continue to go crazy for his musical choice and mixing technique.
